When Strings Attack
The Enduring Legacy of a Very Naughty Hack from 1995 / A Bit of Intl
This is my first attempt at a tech talk thing. The focus here is strings in ES. First we’ll talk about what a string is in ES, then some of the consequences that fall out of that (a few aren’t super obvious), and finally some of the cool tools available for working with strings safely & effectively. Because of the nature of the subject we’ll also get into some more general information about Unicode, encodings and broad concepts related to strings and language.
